vctr: is pretty useful, also once
i locate the 2 vanishing points
i put some guides on them and remove
the pen grid
another lunch doodle
sweet mecha the lighting is great
Freekin fantastic gabo love the color and edge contrasts your playing with while atmosphere could have perhaps pushed the distance/space between the planes I think I works without it + I can't belive what you're putting out as "doodles" the amount of elements the details, props my friend!
Um, I was wondering... It seems like you add noise to all of your sketches. Is that intentional? If so, why?
Love your stuff by the way, I wish I could weild brushes as you do.
Idiot Apathy: seems to be ok now,
but dude i dont know what happens
my wife has the same hosting service
and her sketchbook thread always seem
to load the images i just dont know ill look
into it to see if i can make it less flakey
+ONE: well i dunno i guess i like the noise
effect, altough i usually just add it to this
sketches not the ones i do at the studio,
i hope it doesnt look like cheesy for you
i might not have good taste for photoshop filters
lunch doodle, trying not to make
just side view ships
I think the noise is good, breaks up large areas of color and adds interest. It works best with those most photographic, especially nice when there is a mecha
I'm not sure it would work as well if it were more painterly or a photo texture, but try out soft light layers if you get curious
Keep on rocking gabo
very awesome sketchbook here --- such a great understanding of color and rendered forms !

Idiot Apathy: i agree, all this sketches
have large areas of same color and it
helps break those i mean add little
variation, good point Tom :-D you a
library of knowledge
Sammy: Hey dude thanks !! ive always

doodle at home in 3 point perspective
trying to do first steps
to more level design type of sketches
I hate you...
I must agree with one of tom's earlier crits where he said he'd like to see you tackle some more finished stuff, u know, push yourself kinda thing. Cause at the moment u kinda seem to be doing this stuff without a sweat. Now I suppose that defeats the purpose of a 'sketch' book, but yeah.
thats just a personal request though I suppose, keep rocking man!
Hey man, just letting you know that your perspective is dynomite. Your undustrial designs are very impressive also. I would like to see more of your character designs. From what I've seen, they look really sick.
blog: thanks for writing, well i cant come up
with any excuse except i have more fun doing
this quick ones , i spent lots of hours
on the ones i do at the office and at the end
they all look so stiff and boring to me
they loose the spark, by doing this speed ones
i wanna be able to keep it going
at a point where i just have to do mindless retouchs
that take lots of hours thats my goal,
but again ill keep your opinion in my mind all the time :-)
Idiot Apathy: thanks Tom :-D,
stop watching my crappy sketches its harmful
for your artistic senses
might hurt your eyes
cubesoflard: alright ill try push
some more characters
seems almost everybody around here
kicks my butt doing that
theres no reason
;__; ill never be as good,
again thanks for writing !!!
pushing it puuuushing doing
enviro and mecha at same time, and not flying
next big thing wouldb be making a fight or running !!!
hard stuff to pull out
Idiot Apathy: mmm well actually we forgot to do the last ones
so we might do a big thread in the next weeks with all
the conceptart folks that participated in the game :-D
we still working and working on new expansions
best of lucks Tom !!
Rapidin a la hora de la comida
freehand spaceships, is a different
control on the design phase, somehow
the friction of the paper helps in some way
i dunno is different from doing this
all digital doodles but still fun and good
challenge , i might quick render all this for
portfolio someday pld:
Nahhhh, don't ever shut up! Write a novel each post if you have something to say, I for one love reading your thoughts.
By the way, you ever use SketchUp? Basically 3d sketching, really good for buildings I think. Google has a free version; http://sketchup.google.com/
